Indexer Notes

Originally pencil credit to Tom Cataldo, but the original story in Jungle Comics #68 is signed Rubi Moore on the first page, which has a quite different first panel. A page between 4 and 5 has been removed, and one between 7 and 8. The last panel on page 8 has been altered by removing Ann in the foreground. Panel 5 on page 9 has a new figure of Ann, and on the last page, panels 3 and 4 has entirely new drawings, not by Moreira.
